Bussolari, Giacomo Del
Bussolari, Giacomo Del an Italian preacher, was born in Pavia about the beginning of the 14th century. He early joined the Augustine order, and was sent to preach in Pavia in 1356, where he so severely inveighed against the prevailing vices of the city as to array against himself the hostility of the ruling family of Beccaria. He defended himself by force of arms for a while, but was finally overcome, and died in 1359 of injury by reason of imprisonment. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.
